2019 Iveco Daily 4×4 Is The Ultimate (Italian) Off-Roader For The Apocalypse

While you may (or may not) be aware that Iveco makes some good trucks, vans and buses, a lesser known fact is that it produces an extreme off-roader named the Daily 4×4.

A true truck that can be registered on a car driving license, the latest 2019MY Daily 4×4 boasts good approach and departure angles, small front and rear overhangs, good suspension tune for exploring Mother Nature wherever you live, low-range transfer case and permanent all-wheel drive.

Powering it is Iveco’s own 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine, which at 134 kW (182 PS / 180 hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque, paired to a six-speed manual transmission, is more than enough to help it pull its own weight, and then some. The Daily 4×4 has a payload of up to 2.5 tons (5,512 lbs), and if you don’t dig the dual-cab body style, then you can also order it as a single-cab.

This brings us to the biggest drawback there is: pricing. At AU$110,000 (US $74,350) before adding the massive 37-inch all-terrain tires and other options required for extreme off-roading, the 2019 Daily 4×4 is one expensive piece of automotive kit.

As long as you do not compare it to ordinary SUVs, that’s okay, because it has a lot to offer, from tons of storage spaces to climate control, heated seats and even an infotainment system. However, there’s another vehicle that you may want to check out before placing an order for the Iveco, and that’s Mercedes-Benz’s die-hard Unimog, which is a true survivor in every sense of the word.

    The Daily 4×4 is an upscale shopping mall soccer moms vehicle!

    • Matt

      It really isn’t – it has very few creature comforts, is based on a commercial van, and has a lot of off-road equipment. No ‘soccer mom’ would drive it.

  • no Unimog in Australia?

  • They should rebadge this to Ferrari and ask for twice the price.

    • rebadge as a CaseIH, sell it in the states! like what they did with the Gen2 Unimog

  • MarketAndChurch

    I wish Ford made trucks like this. Call it the F200, F300, F400, etc.

    • Ben

      Closes they come is the F650-F750

  • sidewaysspin

    You’re going to need it soon.
